Our mission is to make the best mental health tools accessible for everyone, as we bring mental healthcare to the masses.  

We’re a venture-backed startup building tools to help millions of people monitor, regulate and ultimately improve their moods.

Our Chairman is Andrew Ng and Dan Jurafsky is a member of our advisory board, both globally recognized leaders in AI/NLP.

We are poised to redefine how people access mental health care and are building the dream team that’s excited about getting us there. You will be working with a modern technology stack that is built on an AWS, GCP and MongoDB cloud platform.
